Mourning the death of the 23-year-old gangrape victim and demanding strict punishment for the guilty, a large crowd gathered at Munirka bus stop, the same spot from she and her friend had boarded the chartered bus on that ill-fated night.
Apart from students and teachers of Jawaharlal Nehru University, many residents too gathered here after hearing about the protest on news channels.
JNU Students' Union president V Lenin Kumar said, "This is a wake-up call for the government. If it does not act, the protests will continue."
The bus stop walls were soon covered with posters, many of them exhorting people to "continue the struggle against patriarchy so that every woman can live a life free of violence".
"Why did they send her to Singapore so late? It was known from the first day itself that the girl was very critical," Kamini Markand, a protester said.
"Every woman in this country feels connected to the rape victim. Today, I am ashamed to be a citizen of a country where women cannot walk and dress freely. In our own country, we are treated as second-rated citizens," another protester said.
